Santa tag

It's Monday and over at Catch the Bug that means we've got some "Anything but a card" inspiration for you.

I used one of my favorites of Jodie's sweet stocking Santa images, colored it with Promarkers and a black pen and glittered it up with silver glitter. I fussy cut the image and placed it onto a piece of kraft paper.

The kraft was dry embossed using my favorite falling snow embossing folder. I used white ink on the raised pattern. The tag is cut using a die from Dienamics.

I added a strip of lace, ribbons and twine from my stash and there's a little metal charm hidden there too stating "Merry Christmas".

This tag is for:
C.R.A.F.T. - #360 Christmas
ABC Christmas Challenge - 'H' is for Hat (Christmas ones)
Crafting By Designs - Get Ready For Christmas
